Today's mobile app is simply called Hnefatafl, and was released by Norwegian developer DKIT for Android and Blackberry 10 phones.

This app features an 11x11 board with pieces modelled on The Viking Game.  The rules are similar to those that come with The Viking Game, though the king is captured by two pieces rather than four.

You can play against the computer, though the player always takes the king's side.  Only the 11x11 board is offered, and there are no rule variations.

You can download the game for Android at the Google Play Store, or the BlackBerry version at Blackberry App World.  Tomorrow I'll be looking at another app for Apple phones and tablets.
